Srinagar, June 1 (Ajit Weekly News) District Administration of Ganderbal in Jammu & Kashmir has recently issued comprehensive guidelines aimed at streamlining and regulating the services provided by service providers in the picturesque tourist destination of Sonamarg. The guidelines specifically target local taxis and aim to enhance the overall experience of tourists visiting the region.
One of the key aspects of the new guidelines is the fixation of rates for taxi services from Sonamarg to zero point.

To further facilitate tourist travel and enhance convenience, the District Administration has established a prepaid taxi stand and pony stand exclusively for tourists. These dedicated stands will not only streamline transportation services but also promote organised and efficient travel arrangements for visitors.
In order to ensure the smooth implementation of the guidelines and address any concerns or issues faced by tourists, a dedicated supervisory team has been appointed. This team will closely monitor the adherence to guidelines by service providers and take appropriate action in case of any violations. Their presence will provide a sense of security and reliability to tourists, ensuring a positive experience throughout their visit to Sonamarg.
Moreover, recognising the importance of effective communication, the District Administration has also established a helpline number exclusively for tourists. This helpline will serve as a reliable point of contact for visitors, enabling them to seek assistance, report any grievances, or obtain valuable information related to their visit to Sonamarg.
